These suggestions might sound way out for someone struggling to survive in a bad economic situation. But it is the way I dealt with it when unemployment and the need to care for three young children drove me. Everyone has talents and can offer themselves if they know how and this is the crux of a good business. What are you good at and how to present yourself. Above all build up your ego and self-esteem.
In my case my early life was full of opportunities and it is sill something that amazes most people. Marriage, however, brought changes for which I was unprepared. Going from complete independence my then husband decided to not support me and when my first was due I was left with the idea of opening a baby shop.
It was OK but quite a drag after the second child came along. My mother who had supported me there and spent long hours behind the counter passed away and things went from bad to worse. Eventually we moved into our own home well away from where I grew up and into an area completely foreign to me. Travelling back and forth to the shop took hours and selling it was the only alternative.
Being at home was horrible as my whole body rejected not being involved in something. The money was also very tight as I still struggled with the meagre income of my partner. He had a drawing board for designing houses and one day I decided I could also use it for designing purposes.
